Abstract

With state agencies and scientists recommending Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) for children with autism, the demand for qualified behavior consultants exceeds the supply. Consequently, children with autism are either receiving alternative, ineffective, and unsubstantiated treatments or are receiving EIBI programming from unqualified personnel. Additionally, when school districts are approached to provide services, the resulting Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) are typically not behavioral and lack the detailed and specific objectives required for children with autism. This article was written to provide parents and educators with an objective and quantifiable IEP, which has been used as a guideline for treatment for a 4-year-old boy with autism.
